METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - If you plan on traveling the Causeway bridge Thursday evening through Friday morning, be prepared for possible delays.  Beginning tonight around 9 p.m..m crews will begin emergency repairs on the southbound drawbridge.  That drawbridge will be closed until 4:30 a.m. Friday morning, but delays are expected for both the south and northbound lanes.

Traffic will continue southbound through a detour, which will force intermittent delays on for northbound traffic.  Causeway Police Chief Nick Congemi says the delays for each side of the bridge will likely last around 15 minutes. He recommends drivers reduce their speed and be cautious in the work zone area.
Please reduce speed and be cautious in the work zone.
